Violent, dark comedy from Chicago Improv actor, radio host, and novelist John Scott Ridgway.  Ranging from the grotesque to the simply gross, John Stewart and Steven Colbert both contributed blurbs for the cover.

The first novel of John Scott Ridgway.  The story of three characters, told in inter-connected novella's, centered on the Iran Contra affair, the role of the artist, and modern tactics of guerrilla warfare.   Going from a poet writing a book, to a CIA operative who runs a crew of child soldiers in Africa, to a spy in a think tank, the novel has been highly praised by critics and readers alike.
